Harris Center Aquatic Research
Hancock, New Hampshire
This grant will provide macroinvertebrate sampling equipment and other supplies for 600 students in multiple schools to take samples from water bodies and examine the macroinvertebrates found as indicators of water quality. Harris Center teacher-naturalists will share the students’ findings with county conservation commissions at the completion of all classes. Students will develop charts, presentations, and/or artwork based on their study, and these will be shared with families and school communities.
